A gang stealing vehicle license plates off foreign cars is operating in Prague, a German news server Sudwest Presse reported on Friday. The website describes the experience of a tourist from Dresden, who said the thieves have left a note on his car demanding 500 euros in return for the stolen plate. He also had to get his car towed away to his hometown because driving without a license plate is illegal both in the Czech Republic and Germany. According to the website, citing official police figures, there were about 30 cases of such thefts reported to the police on one day alone recently. Czech police spokesman, Tomáš Hulan, has denied the information.
